Christina Jungnickel and Russell McCormmach have created in these two volumes a panoramic history of German theoretical physics. Bridging social, institutional, and intellectual history, they chronicle the work of the researchers who, from the first years of the nineteenth century, strove for an intellectual mastery of nature. Volume 1 opens with an account of physics in Germany at the beginning of the nineteenth century and of German physicists' reception of foreign mathematical and experimental work. Jungnickel and McCormmach follow G. S. Ohm, Wilhelm Weber, Franz Neumann, and others as these scientists work out the new possibilities for physics, introduce student laboratories and instruction in mathematical physics, organize societies and journals, and establish and advance major theories of classical physics. Before the end of the nineteenth century, German physics and its offspring, theoretical physics, had acquired nearly their present organizational forms. The foundations of the classical picture of the physical world had been securely laid, preparing the way for the developments that are the subject of volume 2.

Written by physics teachers for physics teachers, Teaching High School Physics provides the dual perspectives of a highly experienced physics teacher educator with a distinguished high school physics teacher. A mix of theory and practice, this 3-volume series provides rigorous and systematic treatments of 40 important topics. While intended to serve as a textbook for teacher candidates, this series is suitable for even experienced in-service physics teachers who seek a reference guide to the many topics being addressed in today’s teaching reform movement. Teaching High School Physics is based on the premise that teachers need to be educated rather than merely “trained” to do their jobs effectively. This belief permeates this series and helps to form substantive and substantiated belief systems that will serve as the underpinnings of a new way to teach. This publication promotes an inquiry-oriented approach to physics teaching, and provides a wide array of resources for doing so. The authors’ Levels of Inquiry Model of Science Teaching theme permeates the series, and serves as the basis for many of the examples provided. The subject matter of this work runs the gambit from becoming a teacher through student teaching, the first year of teaching, and ongoing professional development. The subject matter deals not only with the topic of physics teaching, but also teacher needs and student difficulties. Topics range from teaching philosophies to scientific epistemology, from levels of inquiry to scientific reasoning, from classroom management to instructional technology, from inquiry-oriented instruction to assessing and evaluating, and from school students to school settings. While the topics included in these three volumes are numerous and varied, all are treated in considerable depth. Each volume is based upon both general education and physics education research, and addresses national standards. These volumes were written by a father-daughter team. Carl J. Wenning was director of the Physics Teacher Education program at Illinois State University (1994-2008); Rebecca E. Vieyra was a high school teacher from 2007-2014.

Winner of the 1987 Pfizer Award of the History of Science Society "A majestic study of a most important spoch of intellectual history."—Brian Pippard, Times Literary Supplement "The authors' use of archival sources hitherto almost untouched gives their story a startling vividness. These volumes are among the finest works produced by historians of physics."—Jed Z. Buchwald, Isis "The authors painstakingly reconstruct the minutiae of laboratory budgets, instrument collections, and student numbers; they disentangle the intrigues of faculty appointments and the professional values those appointments reflected; they explore collegial relationships among physicists; and they document the unending campaign of scientists to wring further support for physics from often reluctant ministries."—R. Steven Turner, Science "Superbly written and exhaustively researched."—Peter Harman, Nature

"The handbook is an impressive collection of research studies and theories provided by knowledgeable contributors on life-span development from conception to old age."--Anthropology and Aging Quarterly The doubling of our average life span since the turn of the 20th century is considered by many scholars to be one of the most important changes in human existence. This definitive text is the only volume to fully address, through a multidisciplinary perspective, the biological, cognitive, and psychological development that occurs from infancy through old age, and how the sociocultural and institutional factors interface with these changes. Edited by leading research scholars in the field of life-span development, the volume also includes contributions of specialists in behavioral genetics, socioemotional selectivity theory, neuroscience, ecological models, and more. It examines the dynamics of close relationships and informal ties among the elderly population, child-parent attachment relationships as a life-span phenomenon, developmental tasks across the lifespan, continuity and discontinuity in temperament and personality, the sociocultural context of cognition across the life span, and variability in approaches to social problem solving from early to later life. Given the number of recent demographic shifts, it also explores issues related to fertility, life expectancy, environmental contexts, technology, immigration, and public policy. Key Features: Integrates the full life span from infancy through old age in each chapter Considers multidisciplinary perspectives that address personal relationships, cognitive development, and social, emotional, and physical health across the life span Situates life-span development in ecological contexts (e.g., socioeconomic, neighborhood, and immigration status) Provides a concise but thorough resource for graduate seminars in life-span-related studies Highlights future issues in all areas of life-span study
